Iowa Congressman Steve King is very worried that you are now permitted to marry lawn equipment in the United States.

“You could marry your lawnmower with this decision,” Rep. Steve King (R-IA) said last week about the recent Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage, Iowa Starting Line reports.

Pat Rynard at Iowa Starting Line tried to do just that, but somehow it didn’t work out.

Starting Line decided to do a little fact-checking of our own on this topic. That’s right, I actually tried to marry my lawnmower.

I wheeled her out of the garage, placed her in the car and took her down to the Polk County Recorder’s office in downtown Des Moines to get our marriage license (you can buy a wedding registry gift for us here). After rolling my bride-to-be into the administration building, I sat down with Polk County Recorder Julie Haggerty to ask her if I could, in fact, marry my lawnmower.
